In the new video “DON’T PRAY FOR ME,” SKOLD cheats death.
Tim Skold, a Swedish producer/guitarist/songwriter, has battled the establishment numerous times throughout his professional music career. Skold got the best revenge by simply staying the course and out-fighting the haters, continuously making and releasing new music, from the premature end of his first band, Shotgun Messiah, to his stolen second solo album, which was finally commercially released for the first time last month as Dead God. The brand-new video for the sneering and arrogant “Don’t Pray For Me,” the opener tune on Dead God, highlights Skold’s perseverant and determined side.
Skold and Industrialism have created a music video of filmic vignettes showing the artist facing a variety of deaths, including drug overdose, bathtub electrocution, drunken game of Russian Roulette (featuring a cameo from 3TEETH frontman Alexis Mincolla), military ordinance, and even self-mutilation via seppuku. Skold keeps returning for more, and returning stronger, all the while professing his passionate individuality and self-reliance.
Skold is constantly resurrecting himself for even more “comebacks,” as if that wasn’t enough. He’s presently on the road with industrial legends Front Line Assembly for their Mechanical Soul Tour 2022, and he’s working on new songs with Marilyn Manson again, as well as contributing to the new Ye album Donda 2. Dead God is available for preorder at cleorecs.com.
